Here Are 16 Makeup Brush Sets For The Beauty Lover In Your Life

Holiday season is almost here, and now is the perfect time to start buying gifts for your friends and family! It’s a tradition of mine to start my holiday shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday  when the bestselling beauty picks are on sale. Some of my favorite gifts to give (and receive) have always been beauty and makeup sets with  stores like Ulta and Sephora placing  them front and center for everyone to buy. From lipstick sets to perfume advent calendars, there’s a plethora of beauty buys up for grabs. One essential beauty set that makes for a stellar Christmas gift is a makeup brush set!

Makeup brush sets are perfect for the beauty enthusiasts in your life (or yourself). I was so excited when I got one when I was learning about makeup and wanted to improve my skills. They’re also great for those who like to upgrade their brush collections since they have multiple abilities for makeup application. 

College Fashionista lists 16 brush sets  that are top-rated, makeup artist-approved, and guaranteed to make any beauty lover extra happy this holiday season!
